Cracked black pepper is a prechopped organic black pepper that has been crushed to a 1mm cut, with the fine powder sieved out. Black pepper is the quintessential spice - it has that depth of warm, oily, sensuous flavour that has a spicy bite, yet black pepper can blend with many different flavours amalgamating their special characteristics, whether they be sweet like cinnamon or earthy as in turmeric, to create a new whole that is greater than the sum of all flavours.
The pioneers at North Yorkshire family-run Steenbergs Organic are passionate about providing organic spices, loose leaf tea and cooking ingredients packed with flavour, aroma and decades of know-how. Their products are ethically sourced (many carry the Fairtrade Mark), organic, environmentally sound (Steenbergs is carbon neutral), great-tasting and stylishly yet functionally packaged.
Black pepper seems to work with almost all types of food - perhaps it is its exoticism and its mouthwatering stimulating quality - whether it is vegetables like potato, poultry, red meat or fish like salmon.
